Re: “Fake James Ehlers Campaign Website Disappears

If I thought he could do it, I would suspect Toensing. He seems to have nothing else to do but cast slurs on non-Republicans.

Re: “Walters: Sanders Challenger Still In the Race

Jon Svitavsky is a joke without a punchline. His history is spotty at best, and his advocacy for the homeless sports a number of asterisks. Those with drinking, drug, or mental health issues need not apply. His chance of unseating Bernie is somewhere between zero and nil, and his desire for publicity seems to be the only reason he is in this.

Re: “A Short-Lived Swing Set Makes a Splash in Burlington's South End

The city has no sense of humor or of art. I agree that a full set of toys should be set up, including monkey bars and a slide. Any boat that doesn't see them and runs into them is too close to the shore of a popular swimming area anyway.

Re: “South Burlington School District Fights Suit Over Rebels Petition

Ken Atwood, the word is maim. And wolves only maim people who invade their territory, as most humans do. The Rebel name was offensive to POC and firm opponents of the South's legacy of racism. For years, the school used the confederate flag, as obvious a sign of racism as possible in this state. It is not stupid to allow POC to state their opposition to such a travesty. The school board is to be commended for its willingness to hear of the opposition and to address it rationally. To make such a fuss over a school nickname in the face of the horror of racism that has been on display in this country over the last several years shows a monstrous lack of empathy or a wilful blindness to the rights of others. I hope you're happy in your little bubble.

Re: “State Regulators to Investigate Vermont Gas Pipeline Depths

Sounds like a banana republic, where you let the accused do all the inspecting.

Re: “In a Surprising Turn, McAllister Takes the Witness Stand

Doug 72, he's had plenty of time to make up this story. I'm not even convinced he played it this way to his former lawyers. More likely, it's what he made up to get his current lawyer to take the case. And while I may be old, fat and ugly are not usually words to describe me.

What glass house do I live in? I am a woman who has lived a long time in a world replete with men who believe it is their God-given right to have sex with any woman they choose, and also their right to demean and patronize me. I take a man of this generation at his word and his behavior. He was having sex with at least two women who worked for him. If you thought Bill Clinton was bad, this is simply more of the same.

Re: “In a Surprising Turn, McAllister Takes the Witness Stand

Penelope, you wanna bet that all those down votes are from fat ugly bald old men? I suspect many women and men of good will agree with you!
